AMITY — Attorneys for a young man charged with murdering two men and a 10-year-old boy in a tiny northern Maine town have filed documents seeking to suppress statements he made to police.

Thayne Ormsby is charged with killing 55-year-old Jeffrey Ryan, Ryan’s son and 30-year-old Jason Dehahn at Ryan’s home in Amity on June 22, 2010. Ormsby, who was 20 at the time of the slayings, is being held without bail in the Aroostook County Jail.

Deputy Attorney General William Stokes tells the Bangor Daily News that Ormsby’s attorneys say Ormsby’s statements to police should be suppressed because he wasn’t advised of his rights when police interviewed him. Stokes denies the claim, saying police properly advised Ormsby of his rights.

Stokes says Ormsby’s trial is expected to start this fall.
